About Kenneth and Margaret Mallory

 Kenneth and Margaret Mallory met on a 1974 Kenyan expedition with British anthropologist Jean Brown and started a partnership of photography that has since documented people and natural history on six continents. In Kenya, Margaret recorded the “sapana” initiation of her future husband into the Pokot tribe of northwest Kenya. The summer before she had traveled through Turkey, Iran, and Afghanistan recording fleeting cultural images such as Hazara nomads and Bamiyan Buddhist statues. Kenneth spent twenty-three years as editor-in-chief of publishing programs at the New England Aquarium where he helped produce over twenty books and wrote six nonfiction books for children ten years and older. His photography was an important part of each of these books for Houghton Mifflin, Crown, Simon and Schuster, and Harcourt Brace, among others. Kenneth’s specialty is in wetlands such as the Everglades in Florida and the Pantanal in Brazil. He also has an extensive collection of above-water ocean life, of birds and marine mammals. Margaret, a former English teacher, specializes in photos of people--American adolescents as well as intimate shots of young and old from different cultures around the world.
